Overview: The Communities Transforming Policing Fund (CTPF) supports small and emerging grassroots organizations addressing police violence, criminalization, support for families and victims of police violence, campaigns to invest in communities and divest from policing, campaigns to erode the power of police associations, and build community-based safety strategies.

The proposal process is open to any groups meeting the criteria below: 

  • 501(c)(3) or fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)(3) organization;
  • Groups that were not a part of CTPF’s 2022 Participatory Grantmaking Grantee Cohort. 
  • Have a 2023 annual operating budget of $750,000 or less, specifically $750,000 or less in revenue/income.
  • Grassroots organizing groups working authentically with communities most impacted by policing and incarceration; 
  • Have an explicit, demonstrated commitment to racial, disability, and gender justice that is reflected in the organization’s leadership and staffing and in how it conducts its work;
  • Work includes a power-building and leadership-development strategy that centers those most impacted by policing.
